Champ E-Prep 8:1 On-the-Go Emergency Tool w/ Flashlight & USB Charger
All good, except...
Gave this to my husband for Christmas. While it's a great tool, he says it's too big to fit anywhere inside the vehicle that he could reach in the event of an emergency. I hope it's in his car, but I suspect it's in the trunk. Obviously that's not going to help for getting out of the vehicle in an emergency. He drives a BMW sedan. It doesn't fit under the seat, in the compartment between the seats, and it takes up the entire door compartment - which he uses for other items.
Bought this for our family adult gift exchange. This year's theme was "QVC Christmas". (Past themes were "made in USA", "AS Seen on TV", etc. This was first wrapped item picked in the exchange and after it was unwrapped, it was immediately stolen by the next participant. My brother-in-law tried to hide it so no one would steal it from him. We didn't end up with it, so I guess I will have to get one for ourselves.
Love the Concept and Versatility
I purchased these for Christmas gifts for all of the men in the family. They are a great idea to keep in each car for emergencies. I love that they have the plug in so they offer backup charging if a cell phone goes dead and if you can't plug it in, you have the crank handle for an immediate emergency. The chances of getting caught in a car sinking in a pond/lake are slim, but this has the tools you need for such a crisis.
My biggest reservation is that the casing of the device seems like cheap plastic. I just hope they hold up for emergencies.
Champ E-Prep 8:1 On-the-Go Emergency Tool w/ Flash
Really nice flashlight. Does so many things. especially like the fact that you can crank it to charge if necessary. flasher works great. haven't needed seat belt cutter thankfully.
Everyone should have one!!!
I bought this for my niece for Christmas what a great gift , has a new car just a handy tool, I also bought one for my self just came in the mail today. Something to help you out in any emergency in your car.
I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY DAUGHTER (FOR HER CAR), WHO'S 21, AND SHE LOVES IT. SHE EVEN MADE A "VINE" FOR ALL THE COOL THINGS IT IS USED FOR.
A Great Gift!
I purchased the Champ E for my notoriously ungiftable son-in-law and he went crazy with happiness and gratitude! My daughter couldn't believe it. "How did you know?" she asked me. Of course I told her and she already thinks I'm a QVC addict (and she's right -- for a good reason -- QVC is the best, nothing beats it).
I've now ordered one more for my husband -- it will have to be belated for Christmas and I hope this item remains part of the QVC offerings all year round.
Great gift for anyone, but especially those hard-to-please men (or women) who appreciate a practical (and nice looking) item like this.
I'd give it 10 stars if I could.
Read tne instruction sheet under precautions
Instruction sheet states as follows: Exposure to direct sunlight or extreme heat (such as inside a parked car) may cause damage or malfunction.
Since it's for use in your car, where does that leave one, as most of our beautiful country has exposure from direct sunlight which could cause this described situation. SERIOUSLY!
The Best Flashlight
So glad I caught this show on QVC. This flashlight is perfect. It does everything that
it's supposed to. The light is bright and everything on it is perfect and it works. Plan
to get more. I hope they keep them in stock. This is a perfect gift for all who have a car.
Plan to get more. Don't be afraid to order this one. You will be happy you did.
A Great Item!
I ordered two of these, one for myself and one as a gift. I charged mine up as directed, and then it was time to play. :) LOVE all the features. Hopefully I will never have to use the window breaking portion OR seat belt cutter, but am happy I have them. The flashing base should come in handy, as well as the other features. I prefer to buy locally, but my local hardware store had nothing like this with all the features and THE HAND CRANK in their inventory, so QVC was it. I think my friend will be pleased with this as a gift, too.
Who would this be a perfect gift for? EVERYONE!!
Love them great gifts for Christmas ,great for emergencys.
I recommend this item for any one who drives, walks at night, or needs extra bright light. This tool was already charged when it arrived. Everything on the item worked properly. It is a good value for the money compared to similar items I have seen elsewhere. It is already in my car.
